I guess it’s about time to shut down this blog, Top Finance Blog. It’s been a nice run of 11 years and initially I had a lot of fun and made some nice money, but those days are gone and it’s time to move on.
Since I never had many return visitors or subscribers and had only one comment in the last 5 months, I doubt anyone will actually read this. But that’s okay because I’m turning off comments in any case, so I’ll probably never know if anyone ever cared about most of the content here in the last few years or so.
However, if there were things here that interested you, here’s a bit of information for you. Many of the articles here will be repurpose elsewhere. They’ll either go to my accountant’s blog, who I write for, or my relatively local blog, Syracuse Wiki, where

In today’s fast-paced business world, it is imperative for executives to have the insight and data they need in order to make the right calls at the right time. Business Intelligence is the key to making those correct decisions, as it joins data, technology, analytics, and knowledge to help business professionals make the optimal decisions that drive their enterprise’s success.
